dc.description.abstractWhen hosting an edition of the Olympic Games, the host city commonly experiences various lasting impacts. Thus, much sport event management and legacy literature pertains to host city legacies. However, due to the magnitude of the Games, several nearby cities are needed in order to successfully host such an event. Nonetheless, very little research highlights non-host city legacies. Therefore, due to their necessity, the purpose of this study aims to identify the legacies that have accrued in a non-host city as a result of hosting part of an edition of the Games. Using the case study of the 1996 Games, this research examined the non-host city of Athens, Georgia. The findings of this study revealed that non-host cities experience many types of sport event legacies. Also discovered was that host and non-host cities garner dissimilar legacies and that there are challenges faced when planning legacies within a non-host city.
